Szerszynski, Bronislaw (2016): Coloring Climates: Imagining a Geoengineered World

Szerszynski, Bronislaw (2016): Coloring Climates: Imagining a Geoengineered World. In: Ursula K. Heise, Jon Christensen und Michelle Niemann (Hg.): The Routledge companion to the environmental humanities: Routledge, S. 82–90.

"In this chapter I will discuss the contemporary sociotechnical imaginary of climate geoengineering. If in the Anthropocene our own planet, as much as any other planet we may come to inhabit, becomes an intended world, one in which the majority of once-natural processes and systems are not just accidentally but deliberately shaped by human action, what would be the best word to catpure its climates?"

The Global Energy & Environmental Law Podcast: Climate Geoengineering and Its Governance

"What can we do today to work toward adequate governance of climate engineering down the road? In this podcast, Myanna Dellinger discusses with Matthias Honegger why governance urgently requires a global conversation open to all, which can help unearth concerns, risks and opportunities associated with various new ways to dealing with climate change in the context of expected future impacts from climate change itself. "

Gabriel, Corey J.; et al. (2017): The G4Foam Experiment. Global climate impacts of regional ocean albedo modification

Gabriel, Corey J.; Robock, Alan; Xia, Lili; Zambri, Brian; Kravitz, Ben (2017): The G4Foam Experiment. Global climate impacts of regional ocean albedo modification. In: Atmos. Chem. Phys. 17 (1), S. 595–613. DOI: 10.5194/acp-17-595-2017.

"Here we present the results of climate model simulations of a unique Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project Testbed experiment to investigate the benefits and risks of a scheme that would brighten certain oceanic regions. The National Center for Atmospheric Research CESM CAM4-Chem global climate model was modified to simulate a scheme in which the albedo of the ocean surface is increased over the subtropical ocean gyres in the Southern Hemisphere."
